"Talk to me."Guy falls for guy. Guy doesn’t talk. Guy keeps falling. And I Was Like is a story about love without words.
When Philip meets Trace, his speechlessness is charming, endearing and just a bit unusual. But when months later his mute boyfriend won’t tell him why he's not talking Philip tries everything he can to fix Trace and break the silence. And I Was Like is a fascinating look at communication in a relationship and how desperate we are to understand each other.
